Campers make their first week's selection of activity choices at home. The first week's list of activity selections is entered into our program computer, which produces a daily activity card for each camper. The computer also produces attendance rosters for every activity, every period. During the first week the original activity selection form is returned to the camper to update for the second week.
In addition to making weekly selections campers are given the option of changing their activities on a daily basis. This is done after breakfast every morning and allows campers to take advantage of weather changes, scheduling activities with friends, and adjusting schedules for special programs like inter-camp games.
Campers entering the fourth grade and younger are Junior Campers and travel together as a cabin group under the supervision of their cabin counselors. While they follow a cabin-structured program and are always under the supervision of their cabin counselors, they are given activity choices at certain activity sites. Whenever the cabin group is scheduled lake activities, creative arts, field sports or performing arts, they have the choice of participating in any of the activities operated at the site.

Campers entering the fifth grade are members of the junior division, however these campers are known as “super juniors” and given special status in camp. Super juniors start their summer participating in the standard cabin-structured junior program format. After spending their first week in the junior program, fifth graders who have parental permission, are permitted to join the elective program. Spending the first week traveling to activities as a cabin group with their counselors gives these campers enough time to properly acclimatize to camp and manage the individualized aspect of the elective program.
